Red-Striped Lapins Cherry

This is a new variety of cherry that appeared in the midst of the orchards last year. A oddball looking cherry that looks alot like the Rainier variety. We have grafted a few trees and will watch how they progress over the next couple of years. Quite unique with its yellow and purple flesh. Who knows you may see these in your local supermarkets one day in the not too distant future.


  1. Rick, I just came across your blog about your unique striped Lapin cherry! How cool, how did the grafted trees ever do? I would love to be able to get some scionwood from you and give this a try!

    1. Hi Patty,

      Thanks for visiting my produce blog. The grafting was a success, but it is too early to know if this variety will produce well. Please feel free to contact me in July and I should have some good data available.

      Kindest Regards,
